Change the Rules march

Workers across the country march to Change The Rules

Workers from regional and metropolitan cities across the country have taken to the streets in what is being described as the largest mobilisation of workers since the Your Rights at Work campaign over a decade ago.

Addressing the crowd of 100,000 at Melbourne’s rally, ACTU Secretary Sally McManus said change doesn’t happen by sitting on the sidelines.

“Change happens by us making it happen, rules change because we insist they change” said Ms McManus.

“It didn’t always used to be like this in Australia, we used to have this idea of a fair go.

“The fair go was written by us, it was created by us.

“We insisted on the 8-hour day, we insisted on the living wage, we insisted that when you’re sick — you get Medicare, and when you retire — you get Superannuation.

“We did that. The Trade Union movement of Australia did that, and that is what we’re going to have to do again.”

Thank you to CEPU/CWU members who took to the streets to take part in marches and rallies across the country.

More events are currently being planned as Unions step up the fight to restore the fair go to working families across the country.
